We'll help you to get the best Brazilian Real exchange rate

The absolute worst rates of all are found at the airports so try to avoid buying there at all costs.

Brazilian Real rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Brazilian Real has dropped by 4.56% from 4.8228 on the 20th August to 4.6028 today. Back then, £750 would have bought you R$165.00 more than it would today. During this period the Brazilian Real hit a high of 5.3331 on the 16th September and a low of 4.3857 on the 28th October. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Brazilian Real exchange rate history page.

Brazil has one of the strongest economies in the world right now and is one of the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) who have continued to grow throughout the global slowdown and recession. Brazil hosted the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics, which means it is guaranteed to be the centre of the world stage for at least the next few years. Brazil is also one of the most popular destinations for teachers holding TEFL qualifications to teach English.

Those visiting Brazil are recommended to compare the exchange rate frequently before they go as they fluctuate from day to day. The average traveller takes about £780 worth of reals (based upon data from 1st of July to 30th of September 2017). This is slightly less than the £730 that visitors were taking back in 2013. You should budget about £130 per day staying in Brazil.

Brazilian Reals are not widely accepted outside of Brazil so if you come home use our currency buy back service to sell any leftover Reals back into Sterling when you return from Brazil and get a much better rate than you would in the high street.

Because of the crime levels in Brazil the FCO recommend that you should only carry small amounts of cash. ATM machines are often tampered with and some cash points have been fitted with an anti-theft device that applies pink coloured ink to the notes of an ATM that has been damaged or tampered with. Pink coloured note will not be accepted in the market and they automatically lose their value. If you withdraw cash at an ATM and it has any sort of pink marks, speak to the bank straight away to get it changed.

British nationals travelling to Brazil in most cases will not need a visa and can enter the country on a tourist visa as long as you can demonstrate that you have enough money for the entirety of your stay, details of your accommodation and evidence of your return journey. It is advised that you ensure that your passport is stamped when you arrive as you could face a fine on departure and you must not lose your immigration landing card as you could also face a fine for a replacement when you leave the country.

Brazil has very strict laws on child trafficking and when travelling with your child as a single parent or guardian you will need additional paperwork and you should also ensure that your passport has at least 6 months on it before travelling from the UK. In addition, Brazil has very strict laws on drug trafficking and if you are caught you could face severe punishments including long term prison sentences in Brazil.

The Brazilian Consulate in London has more advice on travelling and entry requirements to Brazil.
